Exclusive images of Amazon's Kindle 2 ebook reader have surfaced on the web and it looks quite a bit more streamlined/thinner than the first-gen model that's been going around.

The unit has a metal backing to it with curved edges and round QWERTY keys. Other features include the retained WiFi support for direct ebook downloads, integrated stereo speakers, a small joystick (in replacement of the scroll-wheel on the 1st gen) and apparently cellphone compatibility to allow Kindle titles to be made available on many mobile phones.
